Composer, multidisciplinary artist, performer, photographer, filmmaker, and singer / arranger on Yo-Yo Ma’s 2017 GRAMMY-winning “Best World Music Album,” Small’s work has been lauded by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, NPR, WNYC, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and Life Magazine. As summarized by The Wall Street Journal, Small’s work “defies category”. Small’s most recent project, Secondary Dominance, combines Tableaux, photography, moving image, dance, and singing, with musical elements that interweave electronic, industrial, pop, punk, rap, Balkan folk, rock, and classical styles. Secondary Dominance premiered as a performance during HERE Arts Center’s PROTOTYPE Festival; The Theatre Times described the work as “a perfect synthesis of opera and media.” The album and several music videos are set to release during the summer of 2019. Small lives on a tree-lined street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and is writing an 8-movement chamber work for winds, strings, percussion, and electronics, entitled “Questions Brought on by the Strangers.” She is also arranging works for Black Sea Hotel’s third record, as well as for two other albums (Universal Sound Array Banner and Boomerang of Black Fluorescence), as well as editing a fantasy / fiction feature film that explores the Tableau Vivant of The Delirium Constructions.
